My self-summary
I'm a very clean-cut, boy-next-door type. I'm lucky to have a great family, outlook on life, my health, a job I love. I'm very positive most of the time and I am happy to have reached a point of pretty deep contentment in my life.

My favorite things are generally reading and listening to music. I do also enjoy alternative comedy shows - they're pretty entertaining and lighthearted. I also like early music - music from before the birth of Bach; lots of hooting and ambient echoes. If we meet, I will likely invite you to a concert.

It can be comfortable being a bachelor in a city like this - I'm very independent, perhaps because I'm an introvert. But, I'm hoping to meet someone unique who sets my heart racing. I'm not dying to meet someone, or sad about being single. Friends are a huge part of what makes life worth living. But I know i would be a great boyfriend to someone who is a great girlfriend (partner or use whatever term you like).

I am a Republican and voted for Trump and am really glad he's President.
What I’m doing with my life
I have a very fulfilling job, I sit on the board of a non-profit I'm super involved with, and I have a pretty active social life. It could be slightly more active though.

I've finished a novel, and am now working on another one. It's fulfilling and feels like a life's mission. I went to Bread Loaf in 2013, so writing is an important part of my life.

Just was in Portugal - amazing trip! Portland, Oregon next for a long weekend this summer.

I also am a regular church-goer and enjoy it very much. If you know what it's like I'd especially like to hear from you. If not, please keep an open mind.
I’m really good at
Listening; laughing; eating healthy; encouraging; giving.
The first things people usually notice about me
Soft-spoken, silly. After a while they'll remark how much they've come to depend on me. Which is pretty nice to hear.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
I'm a librarian and so I live to read, and read to live. I like pretty much anything; if someone thinks something is worth reading, I will check it out. I do usually choose lit fiction and nonfiction on my own, though. I like indies (usually; I'm no snob) for movies; and for music, classical, chill, contemporary folk, and indie. For food I like almost everything except Thai. I eat really healthy options most of the time (and it shows) but late nights when my friend and I are shooting pool, I'll get a craving for a basket of greasy fries.
Six things I could never do without
My family, a nice home, a rewarding job, a social network, books, and something else.
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Myself, the past, the future.
On a typical Friday night I am
I like to stay mellow on Fridays but I don't turn down an invitation from a friend.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I've learned not to be such an open book all the time. Although I will say, my credit score is 840.
You should message me if
For any reason at all. Also, because most women get emailed so much, maybe it's better for you to drop me a note and say hi.
The two of us
